Some children can walk into a room and feel “the vibe” instantly in their body. Others may tune into an unspoken family conflict, or tell someone to "be careful" before stumbling into an unknown situation. These may seem to be the normal human qualities of intuition and empathy, but in highly intuitive children (and adults), such traits are supercharged. Growing up in a culture that favors the rational and the five senses can be difficult for gifted children. This book shows parents, teachers, and therapists how to help them — and those around them — embrace and exercise their gift. The Highly Intuitive Child covers a wealth of topics including: how to easily identify the intuitive child; how life is different for them; the 10 skills to learn before leaving home; the connections between neuroscience and empathy; what other cultures can teach us about supporting intuitive children; success stories; and much more.

Recommended ." —Library Journal

"Crawford steps up to the plate, dealing with the intuitive child's difficulties at home and at school, and encouraging parents to offer love and acceptance. Crawford outlines 10 important skills that parents can teach intuitive children ranging from learning how to tell the difference between random fears and intuition, to how to turn down the volume on “intuitive antennae.” .......she offers sincere support and practical information to parents searching to aid and more deeply understand their highly intuitive child. —Publishers Weekly

"The receptive intuition of a child is often 'on', acting as sixth sense--and such a sense can be difficult to cope with in a sensitive child. From difficulties falling asleep to an exaggerated sense of responsibility about healing people and 'acting out' stress or the pains of others, THE HIGHLY INTUITIVE CHILD is a pick any education or parenting collection needs". —Midwest Book Review
